Karen is a great designer with awesome ideas. She was extremely patient with my ongoing indecisiveness and helped me reimagine my space. I love my apartment and look forward to new projects in the future. Thanks Karen for your time, energy, and creative expertise! Janine E.Jan 5, 2019Verified

Karen is enthusiastic and charismatic and i'm cofident our project will go well. We are underway with design, moving along and she has been a pleasure to work with.Oct 1, 2017Verified
Karen was quick to get my ideas and incorporate them with exactly what I wanted and do better then I could have even imagined. She searched for different items allowing me to have more choices for my family room and was capable of doing what I thought was impossible. My family room looked as if it had just stepped out of a magazine. My neighbors could not believe the transformation. In my opinion Karen is a pleasure to work with and is very talented at what she does.Jul 12, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I prefer to charge a flat fee as a percentage of the total budget, 10%-20% depending on the scope of the work (how much work there is to do). Depending on the project you may or may not receive my trade and designer discounts from retailers. The fee does not include your purchases or hiring other trades for permits, architectural renderings.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It is fine to hire me for consulting services on design ideas and direction only and after a "tour" and thorough discussion, I will provide you a written report with references and resources for you to continue, then, if you decide you want to hire me to oversee the entire project we will negotiate an additional fee for that work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been designing full-time for 20 years. It is important to note that I am an "Interior Design Consultant", not an "Interior Designer". This is why the designers and architects I hire are fully registered and licensed in MD VA DC. As your Interior Design Consultant, I oversee and am involved personally with all phases of the design process: Overall design direction and vision, architectural plans, permitting, color choices, layout design, furniture selection, purchasing, receiving, inspecting, delivery and install, AND I work with only the best furniture makers, upholsterers, and other industry professionals.
